This is a set of audiocassettes; not a video.
It's about 3 hours of just Cory talking to
you about things like motivation to start an
exercise/fitness program and ways to maintain
it once you've started.
She talks about some hard times she's had with
her own program. A big shocker to me was that
some years ago, she had a very serious blood
clot and her doctors told her she would never
be able to compete in bodybuilding again.
Well, she then went on to win the Ms. Olympia
championship *six* times! It wasn't easy,
and she goes into more detail than what I
will here, but she nevertheless did it. Talk
about commitment and motivation!
Throughout the tape, Cory's message always
boils down to taking control of your life.
She gives tons of examples from her own life
and people she knows.
In addition to being a fitness queen, Cory is
also an artist. She talks about her painting
(another example of how she had to overcome
some obstacles) and her songwriting. Now
this might sound a little dorky, but I found
it rather endearing -- she actually wrote a
couple of fitness-related/motivational songs
(country music style), and they are on the
cassettes! (She doesn't sing them, though.)
They probably won't win any major awards,
but they're pretty catchy tunes!
All in all, my impressions of the tapes are
very good. I was really looking more for
actual exercise advice (her own program) and
nutrition advice, but she doesn't go into that.
However, I still really enjoyed listening, and
"getting to know Cory" more. She seems like
a very sweet person.
Instructor comments: I liked Cory before, but after listening to
these tapes a few times, I like her even better
now. More of her personality comes out, and
she becomes a "real" person -- not just a
